Brianna Rapini graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor's degree in biology. She earned her master's degree from Sam Houston State University in educational administration, and she is currently working on supplemental graduate hours in biology at Clemson University. In her public school education career, Brianna has been an AP Biology/biology teacher, campus science instructional specialist, district science program coordinator, and instructional technology specialist. In 2013, she had a conversation with her sister (Sarina Peterson) that involved trying to find an alternative for her biology classes’ lengthy traditional notes and lecture. Brianna and Sarina worked together to create a way to deliver a content foundation to provide more time for class discussion and student creation. This endeavor turned into the "Amoeba Sisters" YouTube channel which features engaging, short cartoons to communicate biology. Both Brianna and Sarina have worked together to create an "unlectured" series with their biology content and remain passionate about unlecturing traditionally lectured educational content.
